Butoh is a dance that started in post World War II Japan as modernism
entered the country. At the same time Japan was moving out of Imperialist
rule and taking in experiences that were not sanctioned during Hirohito's
rule: the butoh artists were also rebelling against the importation of
western culture. Butoh is now danced all over the world, by people of all
cultures. (May 19, 4PM – 6:30 PM)
